Module 2 Discussion (400 WORDS 3 REFSERENCES – RUBRIC ATTACHED)
In recent years, nurses have been fired for posting derogatory comments on social media about people who did not look like them. Effective leaders build organizational cultures where employees can thrive in their workplace. Examine your organization’s diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policy.
Answer these questions:
What policies, if any, exist in your healthcare organization/institution that helps cultivate the skills needed to advance the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion?
• If your organization does not have a DEI policy analyze the DEI policy of another healthcare organization and discuss what policies exist in the healthcare organization/institution that helps cultivate the skills needed to advance the principles of DEI.
• What steps would you take to develop policies you can recommend to your chief nursing officer or chief executive officer?
What role do you play in eliminating discrimination and horizontal and lateral violence in your workplace?
Module 3 Discussion (400 WORDS 3 REFSERENCES – RUBRIC ATTACHED)
Like healthcare disparities, disability disparities refer to the differences in service delivery, disability experiences, or clinical outcomes based on one’s membership in a particular group such as age, race, culture, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status (Kersey-Matusiak, 2019).
Conduct a literature search to locate a journal article related to disability disparities. What disability disparity is the author referencing. What can you do as a nurse to address the disparity and ensure a positive outcome for patients? Consider Lewis’ model. What biases might act as barriers to access to care for members of culturally diverse groups?
